Life is a picnic....

Especially when the weather is as nice as it has been today.  The theme over at The Glitter Geeks this week is "Teddy Bears Picnic", and here is my card.

I used Tim Holtz distress inks to create the sky and beach/grass for the background and the new limited edition colours for my balloons. They are great colours for the spring and summer. I used a CDRom for the cute wee teddy and accented his nose and the cherry on the cupcake with Glossy Accents.

Cupcake stamp by Smirk, coloured with watercolour pencils, cherries highlighted with Glossy Accents.

Hope you like the card, and join in with us this week :)
